Security and User Privacy for Mobile-RFID Applications in Public Zone
To make RFID technology assist people in their daily lives, a new technology called "Mobile-RFID" (MRFID) is being considered. The mRFID technology incorporates RFID-reader functionality into portable handheld devices. In a public zone (e.g., street, shopping mall) one can use their mobile phone as an mRFID-reader to scan tagged merchandize and quickly download information about that merchandize. In this paper they emphasize that, with the ubiquitous presence of mRFID-readers all around people, in the form of mobile phones, they also need to consider some special security and privacy threats.
